Although the results of both Jeuveau and Botox are similar, the manufacturing process is different. When Jeuveau is being purified and dried, the process is more gentle on the botulinum toxin protein which can potentially cause a longer lasting result.
Jeuveau Treatments in San Diego
Jeuveau™ is the newest premium neurotoxin on the market and is manufactured with the advanced technology called Hi-Pure. Jeuveau™ is injected into the glabellar lines, or “frown lines”, to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles with results showing between 24 hours to a week.
Jeuveau™ is FDA approved in the United States and Revive is one of the first providers in San Diego to carry the anti-wrinkle product.
On average, patients receive 3 treatments over the course of one year.
Jeuveau™ temporarily relaxes the muscles in the glabellar to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
Jeuveau™ is relatively painless and quick. The appointment will consist of a small consult with your provider followed by the treatment. Ice is available prior to the treatment to lessen the chance of bruising. The patient may maintain normal activities but avoid laying down or excessive exercise for 4 hours.
The most commonly reported side effects in clinical trials include headache, eyelid drooping, upper respiratory tract infection and increased white blood cell count. No serious drug-related adverse events were observed in the studies.
Most individuals are candidates with a few exceptions:
Jeuveau should not be used for those that have an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Botox or Dysport; have a skin infection at the planned injection site; are pregnant or nursing or are under the age of 18.
For further information, a complimentary consultation is recommended.
